election, but republicans up leaders on education reform, senator landrieu had a workforce on education -- you had republican leaders, lamar alexander. there are areas on renewable energy where republicans in the past have supported the policies of the president. there has been a punishment to buy partisanship over last few years. is that punishment lifted? to republicans worry about facing a tea party apartment? -- opponent? i think that they may recognize that there is none of -- not a lot of point of coming to washington and being a republican. >> the romney proposal on the individual development accounts got a lot of praise. are there areas where you could see the two parties working together? >> surem, on job training but it is not just spend more money like the jobs bill the president obama wanted which was $8 billion when he was already spending $23 billion on a program that was scattered throughout the government. there needs to be necessary reform to improve job training so that people who are unemployed can get irrelevant training and when they graduate, they can get real jobs
guy who really masterminded so much of what we did in this election. he did such a great job as campaign manager, and he will go into more granular detail in what he saw as the results on tuesday. here is jim messina. >> hello, everyone, good to be with you. i want to start out by congratulating team romney for a hard-fought campaign. they were hard-working americans who wanted to make the country better and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a litt
. >> and a few moments, president obama'seens your campaign staff talks about election results. and have delmar, more about the election from political analysts charlie cook and stu rothenberg. then senator chuck schumer on the agenda for the upcoming lame duck session of congress. >> he does rolled himself out. he has taken 10 tablets. >> that is ridiculous. >> at some point he could stop breathing. >> where is sgt robert gates today? >> we ended up following him after this plane ride for many and he ended up injuring himself into an innovative program at walter reed, where they ended up using acupuncture, medication, and other techniques to wean him of all the drugs he was on, and for this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own 2 feet. i really commend the military for allowing us to tell the story, both the good and the bad, but for recognizing the problem, that there is the problem of over medication, and that they are looking for outside the box ideas on how to fix it. that is sort of the whole basis of the film, the status quo is not working and we need to star
. [laughter] victoria book goes final comments. >> reaction to last night's election results from harry reid and house speaker john boehner. and analysis from the national journal. last night and democrats held on to their senate majority. harry reid talked about the election results. we will hear from republican john bellair. -- john boehner. >> i am glad to be back. it was a late night, early morning. to it is clearly we're going increase our majority. but the results show a number of things. a number of things for certain. one is that we're the party of diversity. look at the results from all over the country. i'm looking forward to working with so many great accomplished centers. i have talked to virtually everyone of them. when i came to the senate, barbara mikulski was it as far as women. now one-third of our caucus is women. the remarkable work done by all these great centers to be. but the election is over and we have enormous challenges ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all
it more difficult, more awkward for him to go back toward the center to win a general election. if you are going to say two issues -- one of them might not be fair. the automobile bailout, i do not know how much of that was political and conservatives not liking government interference and how much of it was a harvard business school, harvard law our school -- harvard law school thinking that that would have been a better long-term route for the auto companies that may not have been political, that you them go bankrupt. the other thing is the politicization. you cannot tell me that the mitt romney from 3 or four years ago would have had any intention to go as strident as you did on immigration and how badly the heard him the look and how he performs. -- that hurt him when you look at how he performed. one percentage point more of the vote this time than in 2008 was made up of -- he ended up getting 71.27. you look at that and say, wow. that was an enormous mistake. the second thing that seems to me is that campaigns matter. i hate doing this the morning after the election. there are so
the american people want us to do. that was the very clear message from the election last week. that was message of a letter i received over the weekend. it came from a man in tennessee who began by writing that he didn't vote for me. which is ok. but what he said was, even though he didn't give me his vote, he's giving me his support to move this country forward. and he said the same to his republican representatives in washington. he said that he'll back each of us regardless of party as long as we work together to make life better for all of us. he made it clear that if we don't make enough progress he'll be back in touch. so my hope, he wrote, is that we can make progress in light of personal and party principles, special interest groups and years of business as usual. we've got to work together and put our differences aside. i couldn't say it better myself. that's precisely what i intend to do. with that, let me open it up for your questions. i'm going to start off with ben of a.p. >> thank you, mr. president. can you assure the american people that there have been no brea
their vote with republican leader elections, which happen to be right around the corner. one thing that they have got overlooked in the broad scheme of the house, would talk about redistricting as evil. but there are some states that have taken a different approach. the number one state that has taken a different approach is california. california has gone to a bipartisan redistricting commission. they drew lines without input of the state legislature, allegedly without the input of the state legislature. over the last decade, 53 seats in california, five house election cycles. 265 elections in california and only one seat out of those 265 times changed hands. now, though, we have seen -- as they are still counting a lot of districts, but we have seen eight or nine competitive seats with a very interesting stories. tell us about it. >> on both sides of the aisle, too. by the time we left the office this morning, there were 13 votes. there were about 200 separate in congressman dan lundgren from his democratic challenger in sacramento. and mcnerney had a tough race, too. both partie

that although our members are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate. senator elect tammy baldwin [applause] senator elect mazie hirono. only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that is very exciting. unfortunately we do not have kathy hochul this next congress, but the future is soon coming upon -- we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are. we are still finishing up some of our campaigns. we are very proud of the success -- as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams of american families are. they may not know that, they may not know one party from the next and the rest, but we now that without roza deluaro we would not have the lilly ledbetter paycheck fairness act. without gwen moore would not have the violence against women act put forth the way it is. [applause] working so hard with other members of our caucus, to protect women in the military. [applause] we are so
. compromise should not be a dirty word in washington. that is another message of the election. the american people want action, not political posturing, it will in the decisions made here. it is fair to say that the president believes that he is not looking to boxed himself or other people's ideas out as we approached the conversation that will begin on friday. >> will they have to give up more than they would like to attack the president has made clear that everyone for of this process the whole point of compromise is that no one gets to get achieves their maximalist position. that is the principal the president has based his own proposals on. look at the programs that the president has already cut through legislation he signed into law. look at the savings he is willing to enact as part of his plan. it demonstrates a willingness to give so that you can meet your negotiating partner somewhere in the middle and reach a deal. >> do you have specifics? >> i do not have pacific's -- specifics. i appreciate that but i do not have pacific specifics . . >> what will the plans before the rest of t
after the people to take his case, little thought is what the election was about. is that helpful to the process, or is there more of an inside game he needs to play to keep what happened a year ago from happening again? >> i think it is both. it is clearly he has to reach out to congressional leaders in both parties. he has already reached out -- i am sure they will build on that. continuing the conversation with the public is important. you had some conversation here about interpreting election results. one of the things not talked about in this election -- what we will do with respect to resolving tax policy issues, at least some of them, was discussed in virtually every debate, something that was front and center. >> is that a mandate? >> i think the public has spoken on that, but that does not mean the president is not willing to reach out for the people. i do not think he is going to say, on all these issues, a whole range of different issues, there is a mandate. there are certain issues like immigration reform where clearly they were at the center of the campaign. the presi
the election, take-it-or- leave-it -- >> that is not the way he said. he was careful in the language he said on friday. we will look at what we have proposed. -- take another look at what we propose. they are very substantial. one point of comparison, they are larger in the 10-year window than the health care savings proposed by simpson- bowles. take a careful look at those. we will take a careful look, to. >> what happens if we go over the if? -- the cliff? if republicans cannot bring themselves to raise the top rates and accept what you are offering? >> i do not see why they would make that choice. why would you want to put the economy through that? the recognition that revenues will have to go up, after conceding their recognition revenues will have to go up on the most fortunate americans, why would you decide to take the economy over the if and put the economy through -- through the cliff and did the damage that would cost? because you are unwilling to agree to a modest set of rates for 2% of americans. it seems deeply implausible as a strategy and should be avoidable. >> why aren't you
